Gilson SS-8R 8” Tapping Sieve Shaker in an SSA-805R Sound Enclosure

  • Circular rotation of the sieve stack
  • Vertical two-way tapping at 48 taps per minute
  • Recommended Particle Size: 4.75mm to 20µm
  • 90-day warranty

The Gilson Tapping Sieve Shaker efficiently separates most free-flowing materials with particle sizes from No.4 to No.635 (4.75mm to 20µm). Performance on extended size ranges can be determined by experimentation. The test specimen should be large enough to be representative, without overloading any individual test sieve. Overloading may result in incomplete separation or damage to the test sieve cloth. Maximum loading for individual test sieves No.4 and smaller should be about 200g for 8in test sieves. Test sieves larger than No.4 should be limited to about one particle of material for each available opening.

Gilson Sound Enclosure controls noise and dust associated with SS-8R Sieve Shakers and other lab equipment. Sturdy painted steel case with full-width hinged doors is lined with 1in (25.4mm) of sound-attenuating foam.

This sieve shaker is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.

The photos above are representative. Please bear in mind that the equipment shown is currently in storage in our warehouse and that in addition to testing each machine we will clean all the equipment thoroughly prior to shipment. We often have multiple units of each model in stock and sometimes we're unable to feature photos of every single unit. At your request, we can provide photos of the equipment in your order after it has been tested and cleaned.
